You remember back in the days when you used to rocks waves and shit
When like...yo I had the fucking 360 my nigga
Like nobody in the hood was fucking my shit

from Joey BADA$$ – Waves Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Waves have been a popular hairstyle in urban culture for a long time. Waves that went all the way around — “360” — were the best (a wave gel is even named after the style of waves). Guys would even brush in public to make sure their hair was perfect.

Big Krit also reminisces about when he was obsessed with waves in the track “Time Machine:”

Take me way back, fitted with a wave cap
Brushing in the hallway trying to keep these waves flat

Joey also seems to have found inspiration from the opening line Notorious B.I.G.’s “Thing’s Done Changed”: “Remember back in the days when niggas had waves.”
